I'll wait for my own test drive, and only use these reviews to form a general impression. I'm not sure I'd put a deposit down without a test drive though...
(Heck if I had only listened to the bad reviews about the X3 Sport Package, my wife would have missed on a great vehicle. With Sport Package of course.
Very sensible perspective. Reviews shouldn't be taken as seriously as they are. Much of what people enjoy/dislike about automobiles is entirely subjective. People complained about the E46 M3; I love everything about my E46 ///M3.....from its frenetic/raw nature........to its stiff suspension. I've found that 99% of the things that reviewers complain about (..i.e..IDrive
) don't bother me at all.
